Procter & Gamble
At P&G, we see big potential in life’s little moments. Brushing teeth. Washing hair. Showering. Shaving. Cleaning the house. Doing the dishes, and the laundry. We make the products that help make these moments a little easier.
Our market-leading brands touch & improve the lives of almost 5 billion consumers across the world every day. Our brand portfolio contains household names such as Gillette, Head & Shoulders, Olay, Oral-B & Pantene among others. We’ve been a successful global company for 180 years and it’s our people that are the heart of our success.
Since we started in 1837, innovation has been our lifeblood. Throughout our Company’s history, we’ve created brand new products like Pantene, Olay and Gillette. And worked towards social change with programs like Children’s Safe Drinking Water. As far as business innovations go, we were the first company to sell direct to retailers and pioneered the integration of the different elements of the brand-building process in to holistic brand management.
We aspire to lead our industry and every product category in which we compete. Our goal is shaping the future of our industry and expanding product categories. We’re able to do this because we hire women and men who’ve distinguished themselves as leaders. And because we invest in their personal and professional growth throughout their careers. We’re a Company of leaders who settle for nothing less. It’s how we win.
We’re a company that elevates responsible governance and ethical behaviour. We strive to do business in an open and transparent way. We support good causes and protect the environment. And we provide an inspiring place to work where people are empowered to bring their full self to work and perform at their best. We’re committed to growing our company responsibly, earning trust and building relationships. That’s how we’re building a solid foundation for a bright future.
Our people are the source of our competitive advantage. Our success depends entirely on the strength of our talent. Developing leaders at P&G is simple. We apply the same rigor we use to develop innovative products and services, and apply it to how we develop people around the world at every level.
There isn’t a one-size-fits-all formula for developing the world’s top talent.
That’s why we’ve adopted a best-fit-for-you mentality at P&G. As a “build-from-within” organization, the majority of our people start at an entry level and then progress throughout the company – each in their own unique way. When we make a job offer, it’s with the expectation that you’ll grow into one of our future leaders. We know it takes many different types of people to grow a business that touches every corner of the globe.
We Challenge P&G People from Day One.
We believe there’s no substitute for hands-on experience. That’s why we create early, meaningful responsibilities for every employee. Hit the ground running with challenging and meaningful work that lets you make an impact on our business from day one.
We Never Stop Learning.
P&G is a place where every employee can learn and grow through experiences, feedback and engaging in the right training. So, how do we continue to challenge our people and build their careers? With projects or assignments that push them to expand their ideas. Through relationships, networking and mentoring. And with formal training such as functional courses or P&G Leadership Academy courses. We’re committed to individual development planning that enables your growth.
We Share P&G’s Purpose and Values.
Our Purpose and Values are the foundation of our culture. Our Purpose unifies us in a shared vision to improve the lives of the world’s consumers. Our Values of Trust, Integrity, Ownership, Leadership and Passion for Winning shape how we work. Our Purpose and Values unify us to collaborate as a team internally and compete to win externally.
DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
We believe that every P&G employee is equally talented in unique ways. Beyond the visible differences, we come from diverse traditions, personal experiences and points of view. When we come together we create an amazingly rich tapestry.
We know that fostering a supportive and encouraging environment can inspire every employee to bring his and her personal best. Our mission of Diversity and Inclusion is: “Everyone valued. Everyone included. Everyone performing at their peakTM.”
Diverse talent throughout
In our experience, we are much better at developing game-changing innovations when we have the most diverse groups developing them. Innovation is our lifeblood. It is how we touch and improve lives.
Trusting, open and inclusive culture
We believe in creating a culture of respect for every individual, for the consumers we serve and for the people with whom we work every day. This requires trust, openness and inclusiveness.
A culture of flexibility and agility that inspires peak performance whether it is of physical space (where, when and how), of style or of culture – we are in touch and embrace our changing environment.
In Australia we have two active groups within our local organisation:
GABLE is dedicated to fostering an inclusive, supportive global network that enables Gay, Ally, Bisexual, Lesbian and Transgender Employees to contribute to their fullest potential and to bring their whole self to work every day. What began as largely a North American-centered network for fostering workplace equality for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) employees has grown into a supportive and global community, with chapters in every region of the world including Australia. These grassroots efforts have evolved into chapters representing the diversity of our employees as well as strong allies to support individuality and inclusion.
Australian Women’s Network
Our women’s network is focused on connecting, developing and advancing women in our local organisation. We host regular events to empower and equip women to give their best at work. We are also helping to influence policy to ensure we have the workplace culture and practices which enable flexibility and support.
We aspire to build a better world for all of us – inside and outside of P&G - a world free from gender bias and a world with equal representation and equal voice for men and women.
It makes sense for P&G to stand up for gender equality not only because it’s consistent with our Purpose, Values and Principles — but also because, as an insights-based company, we deeply understand women and girls.
We are leveraging our insights to uncover gender bias, and we’re taking actions that spark conversations and motivate change. We’re doing this through our brands, with our corporate voice, and with our people – and we’re taking action both inside and outside of our company.
Check out some of our global brands who are helping to tackle gender bias and stereotypes in the video section of our profile.
From local communities to global initiatives, we think investing in our planet is pretty important. Helping the countries in which we operate isn’t just a responsibility – it’s a necessity for our success and something our people are very passionate about. We’re making everyday life better through our innovations and actions.
Our long-term vision is to:
- Run all plants on 100% renewable energy
- Send zero consumer and manufacturing waste to landfill
- Make all products with 100% renewable or recycled materials
- Design products that delight while maximizing resource conservation
We have a long-standing history of giving back to the communities where we live and work. Whether it’s providing basic essentials for families displaced by disaster or supporting hygiene education, we aim to improve the health and well-being of all the communities we touch. We have three Corporate programs:
The P&G Children’s Safe Drinking Water program
This corporate program utilises an innovation that created by P&G to transform potentially deadly water into clean, drinkable water. To date, the program has been implemented in more than 75 countries and has committed to delivering 15 billion litres of clean drinking water by 2020.
In 2016, P&G partnered with relief organisations to bring the comforts of home to those impacted by 26 global disasters. Head & Shoulders, Oral-B, Pantene and other P&G brands donated thousands of products and hours to help survivors, families and entire communities regroup and recover.
Habitat for Humanity
Habitat envisions a world where everyone has a decent place to live. For more than 10 years, we have supported this vision, through our Company and thousands of P&Gers who have helped provide safe and affordable homes to those in need of decent shelter.
In 2016, P&G Australia sent a team of 7 employees to Cambodia for a week to build a home for a family in need in Phnom Penh. We also have teams of employees who volunteer with local Habitat for Humanity initiatives here in Australia.
A career with P&G is about so much more than just a job!
